Thoughts on In-Q-Tel as a VC? As an exit, what kind of tier it's in, etc. Non partner roles.

I would think of it more as "do I like looking at / am I comfortable dealing with national-security related investments in cutting edge tech" more so than what "tier of prestige" In-Q-Tel is in

Yes - there just aren't many funds (really, people) that operate in In-Q-Tel's space. But really ask yourself how much you care about the mission because it is very unique and morally ambiguous for a lot of people. Dollars aside, would you have wanted to invest in Palantir? Do you want to look for the next Palantir? Unlike private equity, VC is a lot more about your excitement for a particular sector and for national security, 10 times so.

HR Generalist & HRBP input needed! I’ve always been interested in HR Generalist roles as I like a variety in a role.

Can any generalists or business partners advise if they found that part of the role challenging when first starting?
